The introduction of an ERP system was an inevitable step for our company. The solution AUTOCONT has chosen is essential for Automobilist's continued global growth. The main benefit of ERP for us is the ability to plan and manage company resources in real time, with all the necessary data in a single system base. This is a major change from the original solution. What we particularly appreciate about the cooperation is that it provided us with professional training and configuration of the chosen SaaS solution, and also allowed additional implementations of functionalities specific to our needs. The project implementation went very smoothly and everything was completed within the required timeframe of four months.

Baseline and project objectives

The successful Automobilist project was looking for a suitable system to cover and anchor all company processes, from financial management to logistics. It promised to help with further expansion, as the existing solution did not sufficiently allow for system development and did not meet the legislative needs abroad, where Automobilist successfully operates. Of course, it was possible to connect to the e-commerce platform of the company's main sales channel.

Automobilist had several requirements for the new system, which were precisely fulfilled by Dynamics 365 Business Central SaaS. The main goal was to find a system that would grow with the company and process all company agenda from purchasing and warehouse management, through logistics and accounting to sales through various channels. Of course, the new solution was to support process automation and real-time monitoring of all KPIs. The client also emphasized on fast implementation of the system including integration with the chosen e-commerce platform.

Benefits

  • Thanks to the fully cloud-based SaaS model, the client does not need to use its own servers.
  • System development is easier and updates are seamless, so the system grows with the company according to its needs.
  • Deployment of the new ERP and integration with the e-commerce solution took just 4 months.

Solution

Finance and Accounting
Finance and accounting management forms the backbone of the business management solution. It allows you to efficiently manage general ledger, VAT, banks, treasury, accounts payable, accounts receivable, inventory and assets, across multiple countries and currencies. Includes financial budgets and cash flow planning including outputs and analysis.

Sales support and connection to e-commerce
Automobilist's main sales channel is e-commerce, so the entire sales process solution was geared towards full integration of the ERP with the e-commerce platform. The goal was to automate the processes as much as possible. Dynamics 365 Business Central SaaS is used to manage customer relationships and contact records, it also manages the entire sales process from order receipt to invoicing. In the future, the system will also enable process support and integration of retail sales in Automobilist's official brick-and-mortar stores.

Purchase
The Module solution supports the entire purchasing process, starting with the management of merchandise and supplier cards, through supply planning, ordering process, receipt of goods and services or invoice liquidation to the design of payments to suppliers.

Warehouse management
The basis of the solution for warehouse management is the registration of goods and their parameters, including pricing, as well as support for all warehouse operations. For example, physical inventory. In this part of the implementation it was necessary to set up transparent processes and reports to increase efficiency. Together with Automobilist, we are already planning a follow-up step, which will be the automation of order picking processes using mobile devices.
